I share in this short video the very first word I received for this New Year. It was a dream I had on New Year’s Eve and marks 2018 with a prophetic decree found in Isaiah 58:12.
And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in. (ESV)
I was prophesying this scripture in the dream to a group of leaders. Yet, what I did with it reveals a temptation that we are going to have to face in the days ahead. The Living Word wants to manifest the glory of the Father, but in our desire to be biblically accurate, we may end up following the letter of the law and not the spirit. The second-half of the dream also indicates a clear need to be connected to healthy apostolic leadership in order to stay firmly planted and rooted in truth. Be sure to watch and share with others!

People have listened to the teaching and have experienced an increase in their dreams as well as greater clarity in their meaning. God wants to speak to you in the Night Watch! Check it out.
Wanda, this same word in Isa. 58:12 was spoken in our ladies Bible Study last Tues. Yes, it bears witness with my spirit that Holy Spirit is bringing the same message to many others. Thanks and Blessings …as you follow Holy Spirit.
The chapter Isaiah 58 was quickened to me very strongly many years ago, for quite a while ,until I got what He was saying, and then step by step He quickened the whole 5 fold ministry understanding in Ephesians 4:11 thru 16, [particularly the Amplified version], getting me to write many books on the subject – one of them called ‘Sing To The Lord A New Song’ from the psalms.
He has been pointing me to verse 13, saying that is what He wants to do.
I also notice He is quickening Isaiah 58 through His people, so I believe He is saying this is how He going to is going to bring His kingdom in, because the scriptures fit together so well.
Blessings to you and yours
Back in the spring of 2006 after a 3 day fast and seeking the Lord for direction and confirmation with I was to move from Pittsburgh Pa to Winchester Va He gave Isaiah 58, as an owner of a antique automotive restoration shop, the Lord spoke to me and said I have called you to restore people not cars. People ask me how I knew to move from just from a scripture l read, well it was such a witness in my spirt with his Spirt that my faith and confidence where so stirred I sold everything and moved and everything began to fall into place with out forcing anything. Fast foward to Dec 11 2017 in pray I became so stirred in my spirit and heard the voice of the Lord say: “write” and I began to write and then draw I drew out what looked like a business model or some kinda of plan or strategy , I said Lord where is in the scriptures and what is it. I had him say Isaiah 58. As I read it verse 12 jumped off the pages then I read it in the message bible “You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew, rebuild the foundations from out of your past. You’ll be known as those who can fix anything, restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate, make the community livable again.” Its such a witness in my spirit and confirmation to your word the Lord gave you and I believe as we restore people we will restore homes as we restore homes communities will be restored, then regions, states and nations. The church will and does have the answers through His Spirit with practical applications and we’ll be known as the people who can fix anything!!! Thank you!
Is Isa. 58:12 working in conjunction with Acts 3:21? “So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord; And that He may send [to you] the Christ (the Messiah), Who before was designated and appointed for you–even Jesus, Whom heaven must receive [and retain] until the time for the complete restoration of all that God spoke by the mouth of all His holy prophets for ages past [from the most ancient time in the memory of man].”
Acts 3:19-21 AMPC
From many experiences of attending local churches, this syndrome always plays out, they want to know where I am coming from spiritually and otherwise.
I then have to refer them to what the Lord has shown me with regard to the 5 fold ministry [Ephesians 4] and everything flowing out of that ministry wise, I show them that it is all there in my books and videos, and the inevitable consequence of restructuring the way that Church is done, because the Word is clear, there is no ‘I will set myself above’, that all based on function only, including the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Yes, in the early days I did tend to lean on ‘the Word says’, but once He showed me that there is no ‘I will myself above’ I believe that the Spirit of the Word came in.
I even had the leaders of the Churches say to me “It would be good if you move along”, even though I was leaning over backwards not to sow discord in the congregation.
So I am dong my best to stay in contact with the Body online, through LInked-in, Bebee, Facebook, and others.
I post what the Lord has shown me, and see who will receive.
I thank you for your ministry and the spirit in which you do it, it is a blessing to me, and I see to others as well.
Blessings to you and yours
